Mission building story thru founder’s poem.

Maker of the PET cart since 1994.

Have you brought mission items in thru the doors or sent them out?

Mobility Worldwide MO – Columbia Update: 1,623 mobility carts built in 2016

OUR BUILDING HAS FOUR DOORS

Our building has four doors.
We use them one and all.
Good things go out the one big door,
but they must first come in the small.

PET parts come pouring in,
from all across the land.
Most are made in part or all,
by a volunteers own hand.

Milk jugs and clean tin cans
come from folks all ’round,
to fill the empty spaces in the box
so the PET arrives safe and sound.

The money comes in from a box out front,
a most important door.
Kathy uses that to write the checks
that keep us doing more.

Pickups back up, and then unload,
clothing, sewing machines, toys,
tools and paper, pots and pans,
and new school desks for girls and boys.

Big containers, long and tall,
back up to the big door and open wide.
Volunteers go to work with zest and joy,
and fill every cubic inch inside.

That big box goes to those in need,
our partners, God’s “least of these.”
They are our sisters and brothers,
in a bonding that will never cease.

That’s the message, dear one and all.
What goes out the big door must come in the small.
So keep those doors all swinging wide,
and do it all with love and pride.

Ever day is Easter when the container arrives,
with the old fading away and lives made new.
If that is to happen in 2017,
it is up to me and up to you.
